For polling locations, voters should check their registration card or call the Kitsap County Auditor at 842-2061 and press option no. 4. Locations are:

• Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, 11042 Sunrise Drive NE

• BPA, The Playhouse, 200 Madison Avenue N.

Money for human help

Bainbridge Island’s Health, Housing and Human Services Council is seeking funding proposals for 2006 from nonprofit agencies providing health, housing and human services to island residents.

In 2005, $270,100 was allocated from the City of Bainbridge Island for such services. Currently, nine agencies are receiving from $5,000 to $98,700 each, to provide youth services, daycare, volunteer and transportation services, support to families in crisis, counseling, and financial assistance.

HHHS, a nonprofit organization, reviews applications and makes funding recommendations to the city for service contracts to be included in the City’s 2006 budget.

Applications for funding will be available at City Hall in the Mayor’s office, and are due by 4 p.m. May 27 at City Hall.

For more information on eligibility for funding, contact Jan Lambert, HHHS executive director at 842-9335.
